Description

This prospect was drilled as the Superior Oil Company No. 1 Watkins-Miller, located in Section 5, T15S, R5W, Cameron Parish, Louisiana. The well site is just north of lot 39 on Indian Point Island and is readily accessible from State Highway 82 via a shell road which is in good condition. This location is shown on the lower portion of the USGS topographic sheet ''Grand Lake West''; a portion of this sheet is included. Superior Oil completed this well in late 1970 as a dual gas producer in sands between 11,150 and 11,250 feet and abandoned it in December 1974. This well was initially selected as the first Geo reentry candidate but was deferred when the landowner refused to grant reentry and test rights. He has, however, now indicated that he would be willing to grant those rights for a fee of $50,000. In view of the need for an alternate well to replace the State Lease 4183 No. 1, Gruy Federal has thoroughly reviewed alternate wells and concluded that the Watkins-Miller No. 1 requires minimal site preparation and is the reentry well of choice.
